They are used to the style of play, sometimes it needs a bit of time, I have no problem with that. "They know that, we know that and we have to be ready week in week out for the different challenges".
"We can not be anything different from the challenger because we didn't win anything since I am in anyway, [and] it's long time ago".
A very good start, for sure. For us it was not ideal, but really good. Mohamed Salah opened the scoring for the hosts and Sadio Mane put the game beyond doubt with strikes either side of half-time, before Daniel Sturridge netted with his first touch off the bench late on. Always you see things in pre-season [against] different opponents and in different moments, but now the Premier League is a proper fight and immediately today that's the biggest change and then you hope as a manager that your team is ready for that, because you can not test it before you have the test. That's what we expect from ourselves and then we will see where it leads to.
He's not wrong. Liverpool aren't the favourites and City are but it's clearly a little mind game trick to place even more expectation on his rivals and to help ensure his side can go into the season without the weight of expectation making things even more hard.
The Reds had a busy schedule over pre-season, with friendly matches against Chester, Tranmere, Bury, Blackburn, Borussia Dortmund, Manchester City, Manchester United, Napoli and Torino all contested.
"They think quickly [and] they have a very good understanding between themselves so my role is to support that, help in every way I can and hopefully provide them with some good service".
"You can not wish for better. That's the expectations. Ours is the highest but we know that".
Klopp's strength in depth has been greatly elevated, even without having a full roster to select from yet.
He wanted his players to see themselves through his eyes, to amplify his voice rather than the social media criticism, and to shatter any shackles or ceilings they had placed on themselves. Adam Lallana didn't come on and is getting better and better and better. "But my goodness he's got an assist, he's got a goal, set players".
Carragher, though, has warned that Jurgen Klopp has to get things right in 2018-19 as there is no money pit at Anfield and the picture could change considerably in the space of 12 months.
Replicating the 44-goal haul which heralded Salah's debut season at Anfield has not fazed the Egyptian despite an early Champions League final exit and similarly fruitless travails with his national side as they mutedly exited the World Cup group stages.
Elba, 45, has previously dismissed rumours and said he had not had any discussions with the studio about taking over the role. The actor posted a filtered selfie - only featuring the top part of his face - with the words "my name's Elba, Idris Elba".
She said the recording took place in the Situation Room, raising questions about security and ethics. "No one. But Sunday she tells Chuck Todd that, after the book closed, she was able to hear it personally.
And thereby hangs a tale. "It's like I'm not even thinking about my birthday, So it's kind of amusing ", Auger-Aliassime said. He almost swept the European clay-court swing, winning his 11th Monte-Carlo, Barcelona and Roland Garros titles.

A glass box on a platform was filled with smoke as a magician presided over proceedings at the Estadio de la Ceramica on Thursday. Cazorla hung around after the stepping out of the glass cylinder to wave at the crowd and sign autographs.
Wallace moved up the leaderboard thanks to a hole in one on the par-three 16th, describing it as the "best shot of my life". The US Open champion, who had led by five shots, carded a four-under 66 to stay ahead of Australia's Adam Scott .
This was confirmed by the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf ( PTI ) Central Additional Information Faisal Javed Khan on Friday. Imran Khan and Hoover had exchanged views on Pak-US relations and matters of mutual interest.
People how ask how they will do, but I know a little bit about their manager and how good they will handle that. After all the pre-match hype, Danny Welbeck is not even in the Arsenal squad, let alone at left-back.
Manigault Newman also reportedly secretly recorded Trump , then used those recordings as leverage while shopping her book. She told him to forget about it and writes that "we laughed, he wanted me to believe he was kidding".
